Abstract:

"Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625) has long been recognized as holding a leading position in English music of the seventeenth century. In his own time he was known both as an outstanding composer, and a performer who was described as 'the best Finger of that Age' and 'the best hand in england'. It is therefore surprising that John Harley's Orlando Gibbons and the Gibbons Family of Musicians is the first full-length study to deal with his life and music since E. H. Fellowes's short book, originally published in 1923."--BOOK JACKET.
